I am amazed with myself! I have made loads of progress with my knitting projects. What a difference not having any children around makes to my devoted knitting time. I have finished knitting the Booga bag and have now started on the I-cord strap. I didn't bring my double pointed needles, so here I am doing them on 24" circs. Man, what a pain!!! I managed about 4" and got very bored. Well, I have a long journey in the car later, maybe I'll do some more soon.
So, I thought I'd start something else instead. I have decided to make Polly's Kiri. It's such a gorgeous shawl. The yarn in Kaalund yarns expression in Waterlilly (just think Monet - beautiful colours- sorry, the colours aren't great on the photo). I bought the yarn at the Knitting and Stitching show last October. After a few false starts, I have managed to get into the groove of the knitting. Knitting laceweight yarn is definitely a skill.
Finally, I started making a little tank top for me with Laines Du Nord Bikini in white which I purchased from Loop (on sale) few weeks back. The yarn is 100% Tactel and is very stretchy. I'm kinda making up the pattern as I go along, so we'll have to see how it turns out. The body is knitted in a 1x1 rib and that's it. I haven't quite decided on the rest yet! Hmm
We leave Denver today to drive to Vail. I'm not sure what the Internet access will be like, but I hope to be back soon.
